[00:00:09.920] One thing that you will never see me do is I never rush our patients. [00:00:14.400] I will sit in the examination room until all of your questions are answered. [00:00:21.080] I think Dr. Justo is a phenomenal doctor and person. [00:00:25.640] He truly does care [00:00:27.560] about each individual patient and wants to make sure that they [00:00:31.520] understand everything about the procedure that they're going to be having done. [00:00:35.800] I opened up our flagship office, which is the Sun City West office, [00:00:41.400] and I call it the flagship office because we serve many different roles here. [00:00:47.080] We not only have the traditional standard ophthalmology and optometric care [00:00:53.440] for the diagnosis and management of eye disease, [00:00:57.200] routine eye examinations, and glasses and contact lenses, [00:01:02.280] but we also have our surgical center. [00:01:05.600] We're very proud of the fact that our surgical center here, [00:01:08.800] also known as an ASC, which stands for ambulatory surgery center, [00:01:13.600] is both Medicare certified, it's state licensed, [00:01:17.360] and it's accredited by AAAHC, which is a national accrediting agency. [00:01:22.800] In our ophthalmic practice, [00:01:25.600] we have a unique system that I'm very proud of that we've [00:01:28.600] developed over the years, [00:01:30.560] and that is that we have medically trained optometrists [00:01:35.480] who do the majority of what is known as our primary eye care. [00:01:39.920] We can address anything that comes through the door, [00:01:42.880] different eye conditions, diseases, and we have the experience and knowhow [00:01:49.200] to be able to pretty much take care of everything here. [00:01:53.960] These outstanding doctors [00:01:56.680] are well capable, truly as equally capable as me [00:02:00.440] of providing first class eye care for our glaucoma patients, our diabetic patients, [00:02:06.840] our macular degeneration patients, and even our cataract patients. [00:02:11.320] Bringing together these different specialties, [00:02:13.240] optometry, ophthalmology, specialists in cataract surgery, [00:02:17.440] laser vision correction, [00:02:19.080] and giving patients every single option they had for achieving [00:02:22.640] what they wanted to get out of their vision [00:02:24.400] and the health of their eyes. [00:02:26.160] We like to spend a lot of time with our patients. [00:02:28.960] We like to make everyone feel that they're [00:02:30.680] the most important person we've seen all day. [00:02:33.360] These are not optometrists that you would find in so-called [00:02:37.920] big box retail centers, [00:02:39.840] but these are exquisite doctors who really [00:02:43.240] know the eye and know pathology [00:02:46.880] and can diagnose and treat your conditions. [00:02:51.080] I've been in ophthalmology for 27 years, and it's a passion. [00:02:55.720] I see that other people I work with, [00:02:58.680] other technicians that have that same value. [00:03:01.560] We at Arizona Eye Institute are always continuing our education and continuing [00:03:08.960] our knowledge by reaching out in the community [00:03:12.560] and seeing what's going on in the community, [00:03:14.280] what's going on in technology, [00:03:15.960] to make sure that we are offering our patients [00:03:18.720] the latest procedures, the latest technology, [00:03:21.960] the latest equipment. [00:03:23.360] This office is on their game. [00:03:25.240] They have mastered the art of patient care. [00:03:29.600] It is incumbent upon us [00:03:31.560] to treat each and every patient with the utmost in respect and dignity. [00:03:37.320] It feels like a family here, [00:03:39.800] and everybody is so friendly, and they just treat you so well. [00:03:44.080] It's nice to come to one place to get all of this done. [00:03:47.800] I feel like the patients, [00:03:49.960] if they know we've been here for a very long time, [00:03:53.600] they think that it's a good place to come [00:03:56.120] because the employees are being taken care of, [00:03:59.280] and then in turn, we'll take care of the patients. [00:04:01.880] They're very warm. [00:04:03.920] It almost feels like you're coming to visit your family. [00:04:06.760] I don't say that lightly. [00:04:08.480] It's just nice working with someone [00:04:10.400] that you have confidence in because you know that the patient is in good hands. [00:04:14.440] Well, patients can expect to be treated with kindness and with attention. [00:04:20.120] We like to give everyone the attention [00:04:23.080] that they deserve and the time that they deserve and with courtesy as well. [00:04:27.880] We do believe that our practice is unique and offers many benefits, [00:04:33.080] and that's why we would encourage you and welcome you to come visit us. [00:04:37.120] There is nothing more gratifying [00:04:39.400] than having an existing patient refer a friend, a neighbor, a family member. [00:04:45.560] That to me is the biggest thank you that I can receive.
